Sally Schneider QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of chefs in restaurants, when they create their tasting menus, don't seem to consider that. They're trying to impress with too many rich items.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
A lot of people love the idea of improvising but are terrified of it, so I tried to make a book that was not a chef's book about improvising but a real home cook's book with a real home cook's pantry, supermarket ingredients, that sort of thing.
Quotation of Sally Schneider

I was aiming for the cooks that I've talked to by teaching an online course and by traveling, listening to people who are really busy and harried but want to be cooking.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
I was doing the food for photography. I had an eye for it. But I was always writing, and the writing took over.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
I was working in restaurants as a captain and as a waiter.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
I'm a serious eater and a seriously hungry person, so I set out on that path to figure it out for myself, and of course it really resonated with other people.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
I've been to Spain many times, and I'm always knocked out by the markets and the restaurants I've stumbled upon.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
It was as though I found the language I'd wanted from photography; the expression that I got partly from photography, I got completely from cooking.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
Often for hors d'oeuvres, I serve room temperature vegetables, something like that, so that the main course might be quite rich but the first course has balanced it out.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
One of my greatest joys is when someone like your wife takes one idea or one piece of a recipe and does it her way. That's what I'm encouraging.

Quotation of Sally Schneider
So I was making a lot of money, and I was also doing my photography and studying.
Quotation of Sally Schneider

Quotation of Sally Schneider

The problem with chefs and culinary schools is that they're geared toward professional kitchens, which are totally different.

The restaurant chefs in Spain are breaking ground, but in terms of the everyday cooking in Spain I still hear people coming back and saying they were disappointed. I think it's because they're expecting the chef stuff.
Quotation of Sally Schneider

Quotation of Sally Schneider
There are so many things that come into writing a recipe, and it's really important if you're writing for home cooks to be cooking like you are at home.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
This book is pointing the way into it for people that see it as daunting or a mystery. Some people just do it, but others need help with the mindset, permission almost to listen to themselves. Understanding how things work is the key.
Quotation of Sally Schneider
To write a book about improvisation is partly a contradiction in terms. Improvisation is spontaneous. It's in the moment.

You know, this is really a way of cooking. It's not my way. I'm deeply influenced by the Mediterranean way of being. I've spent a lot of time there. And I've sort of translated it; I've tried to make it available to people in this country to whom it might not be familiar.
